Robber locks store owner out


Prepare


for the


county


fair

LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer

It's almost here; get
set for the county fair!
Frivolity, fun, fairway
rides, talent shows, pro-
.fessional wrestling, and
loopy laughing clowns
are just a few of the
fun-packed lures of the
legendary fairgrounds.
The gates open at 10
a.m., Friday, Feb. 26, for
"Kids'Day," when ad-
mission for school-age
kids is free, with a $15
armband for rides.
Once inside, kids can
ride, munch, and stroll
through the fairway,
playing games and
checking out exhibits
until the gates close
sometime after the fire-
works, which start at 10
p.m.
Day one is packed
with kid stuff.
There is the 4-H
Fashion Review Show,
and if that doesn't daz-
zle, break a leg to see
the popular Sumter
County Star Search in
the Main Hall; the com-
petition features a vari-
ety of local talent.
The Sheep Show fea-
tures some of the area's
finest livestock compe-
titions, and later Friday
night, fireworks will
leave one with the af-
terglow of an exciting
day.
Saturday, the gates
'open at 10 a.m., and the
fun continues, only add
the Heifer Show, where

Some of the members
from both clubs attend the
church and worked to spon-
sor the youth project, ac-
cording to youth pastor
Wayne Foster.
Foster said, ".It was a
great, great success." even
though they had less people
attend and the money the
kids raised was only about a
third of what they made last
y ear.
He's basing that success -
on the response of the peo-

How clean must water
be?
How clean can Floridi-
ans afford it to be?
Those are questions the
Florida Farm Bureau
asked as the U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency
prepares to tighten up
Florida's water quality to
standards higher than
those of any other state.
"Florida's been singled
out," said Charles Shinn,
assistant director of gov-
ernment and community
affairs for the Florida
Farm Bureau Federation,
which represents the in-
dustry of agriculture.
"We're the only state to
have these higher stan-
dards, and the science is
not there to support it."
Shinn sees no need for
the federal agency to slap
higher standards on
Florida. No farmer wants
to pollute, he said, and all
farmers work toward cur-
rent standards that serve
the state well. Shinn said
higher standards would
not only be more costly for
farmers, but for all other
industries in the food
chain and the consumers.
Higher criteria would im-
pact costs for businesses,
utilities, local govern-
ments and water manage-
ment districts - everyone
living in Florida.
In Sumter County,
Nancy Lopez, a supervisor
of the Sumter Soil and
Water Conservation Dis-
trict, and a retired scien-
tist, says the proposal
needs to be examined
thoroughly.
"I wouldn't necessarily
think it would be a bad
thing," Lopez said, adding
that she has not fully re-
viewed the proposal.
While Lopez said she re-
alizes there will be sub-
stantial opposition to
EPA's proposed water ,
quality standards, "People
need to be assured that we
have a sustainable water

with information for the
public. Representatives
from Devereaux Kids and
other agencies were on
hand to provide informa-
tion to the public.
Representatives got a
chance to have one-on-
one conversations with
visitors and are looking
forward to participating in
next year's event, accord-
ing to Foster.
As for the teens, they're
working their way to sum-
mer camp. They served up
biscuits and sausage gravy
for breakfast and hot dogs,
hamburgers and chili for
lunch.


There are 12 kids plan-
ning to go to Liberty Uni-
versity Lynchburg, Va., for
the weeklong camp.
It's a program through
Student Life that includes
praise and worship, Bible
study and interactive
games.
As the youths plan their
next fundraiser, which is a
chili cook-off at the
church on Sunday, Feb. 21,
Foster is busy as their
leader and with Dev-
ereaux Kids in the com-
munity.
He said the organiza-

"It's a prevention proj-
ect," he said, noting that
they're working to keep
kids away from drugs, al-
cohol and other potential
dangers.
He said they want to get
"things going in Lake
Panasoffkee so kids have
something to do," and so
they're safe.
The advisory group
meets at 6:30 p.m. on the
first Monday of each
month. Meetings are at the
Lake Panasoffkee Recre-

The meeting is open to
the public.
He said they're hoping

after Sheidrick McNeal, 44,
Bushnell, grabbed and
pulled him by his jacket dur-
ing an investigation of a re-
ported disturbance,
according to a sheriff's office

until deputies had to utilize a
hobble restraint on his legs,
according to the police re-
port.
McNeal was transported to
the Sumter County Detention
Center and booked for bat-
tery on a police officer and
resisting a law enforcement
officer.

About 9:35 a.m., Wednesday, Feb. 3,
an inmate at U.S. Penitentiary near
Coleman was flown to a local hospital
after an altercation with another in-

leased by Kevin Rison, public

Fleeing motorist sought by police


Sumter sheriff's
deputies assisted the Mar-
ion County Sheriff's Office
last week as they searched
for a motorist who fled
from a deputy during a
traffic stop.
The incident happened
about 9 p.m., Wednesday,
Feb. 3, in Summerfield.
The driver of a 1995
Buick was stopped for a
short while by a Marion
County deputy but then
raced away, according to a
Marion County sheriff's
department report.
At one point, the Buick
sped through the southern


part of Marion County..
When the driver arrived
at County Road 209, he
turned the vehicle, leaving
the roadway, crashing
through barbed wire fenc-
ing and traveling about 150
feet before stopping in a
field, according to the re-
port. At that moment, the
driver and a passenger ran
from the vehicle.
The passenger,. Ernest
Jones, 20, of Ocala, was ar-
rested at the scene after an
investigation revealed
Jones had two active war-
rants. Jones was taken to
the Sumter County Jail


(Sumter County Sheriff's
Office assisted during the
search).
The driver, Harold
Danny Clarke, 19, of Weirs-
dale, is still being sought by
Marion officials.
Clarke is described as a
black male with brown
hair, brown eyes, standing
5 foot, 3 inches tall and
weighing about 140
pounds.
Anyone with information
about Clarke's where-
abouts can earn up to
$1,000 in reward money by

Sheriff shows he gets


it by refusing pay hike

S heriff Bill Farmer is having no part of a state-calcu-
lated, county-funded pay increase he's slated for this
upcoming fiscal year - not while his employees' pay is
frozen.
"I feel, very strongly, that I'm not deserving, if they're not
deserving," said Farmer, when asked why he recently re-
fused the proposed pay increase.
Sumter's top cop refuses to indulge himself while his de-
partment employees work to improve their job skills, risk
their lives and get nothing additional for their efforts.
County commissioners recently sent a letter signed by
County Administrator Bradley Arnold directing constitu-
tional officers not to provide salary increases for their em-
ployees, unless they limit their proposed budgets. The
upcoming budget year starts Oct. 1.
Ironically, though county employees' pay was frozen last
fiscal year and may be again this year, the state mandated a
collective 5.7 percent increase over the past two fiscal years
for the county commissioners.
In the current volatile economic environment, perhaps it is
right to freeze county pay; however, it is difficult to justify
pay increases for the county commissioners who ordered the
freeze.
If the commission's directive becomes a reality this year, it
will be the second consecutive year county employees' pay
was frozen, while commissioners enjoyed increases.
The notion that, because the state calculates the commis-
sioners' salaries, there is nothing they can do but accept a
pay increase doesn't hold water.
Unfortunately, this is a legislative issue that can't be solved
or reversed at a local County Commission meeting. Salaries
for commissioners and constitutional officers are based on
state calculations that include increases for population
growth.
That's where the change needs to be made.
Farmer had his department's finance officer deduct the
pay increase from his salary.
At the end of the fiscal year, the money will be returned to
the county's general fund, according to Farmer.
This seems like the right thing to do.
In a recent interview, Farmer stressed that refusing to ac-
cept an increase is his personal way of dealing with the issue.
Admirably, when contacted, the sheriff refrained from crit-
icizing or even mentioning other constitutional officers,
much less suggesting what they should do with their pay in-
creases.
The Times acknowledges many employees in private busi-
nesses are facing layoffs and are not receiving pay increases
due to the nation's volatile economic climate.
All the more reason why it isn't right, regardless of who cal-
culated them, for county department heads to receive pay in-
creases while having to deny increases .for deserving
employees.
Farmer shows leadership and courage of his conviction in
returning his pay increase to the general fund.
Farmer said, "I'm not deserving, if they're not deserving."
It's a good statement, given the current economic condi-
tions.

Letters to the editor


Thanks for being
an honest person
Recently I lost my coin
purse as I got out of the car at
Walmart in Bushnell. I was
sick about it, to say the least.
We drove home by way of the
interstate, the next day went
to Inverness hospital where
the car was parked two days,
then through the rain Satur-
day, Sunday to Leesburg mall.
As my husband stepped off
the curb at the shopping cen-
ter he said you won't believe
it, I immediately thought of
my coin purse. There it was,
in the windshield well by the
wipers. We were so excited
and in shock. All the money
was still inside, a bit damp
from the recent rain, but
there. I want to thank who-
ever found it and put it on the
right car.
Extremely grateful to a most
honest person.

Lake Panasoffiree
Not so humane
on issues
I recently received a re-


quest for money from the Hu-
mane Society of the United
States (HSUS), an organiza-
tion that could destroy animal
agriculture. As a farm girl and
a rancher's wife, I know from
personal experience that
their claims are largely un-
true. Farm animals are not
mistreated, and HSUS does
not fund animal shelters.
They fight to ban practices
that have been proven effec-
tive over the years. They were
successful in getting a law
passed in California which
will destroy the pork and
poultry industries there. In
fact, HSUS attacks American
farming, farmers, and ranch-
ers. Their claims are not sci-
entifically valid. They are
intolerant of anyone who dis-
agrees with their point of
view.
If HSUS is successful in its
agenda, food could become
scarce and many more people
would have to be engaged in
farming for daily sustenance.
I, for one, am quite happy to
live in the style we Americans
have become accustomed to. I
like being able to go to the


grocery store and find plenty
of choices of foods - meats,
vegetables, fruits - at reason-
able prices. While there is al-
ways room for improvement
and for learning new things,
the American farmer's prac-
tices have allowed him to feed
much of the world. Thanks to
his efficiency, few people now
have to work on a farm in
order to eat, particularly in
the U.S.
In Sumter County, we sup-
port animal services with our
tax dollars. Some also give to
our local humane society and
the ASPCA. The local efforts.
deserve our support as they
rescue and shelter homeless
or abused animals. HSUS
does little for animal welfare.
I like animals and want to
see them treated well, both
farm animals intended for
food and pets. I also like to
see my charitable dollars well
spent. HSUS is good at col-
'lecting charitable dollars, but
not at spending them on ani-
mal welfare.

A step beyond


Black bikini versus bib overalls


Larry or I
Clifton ^ ^r/.

Staff Writer

after living more than a
S year in the north Georgia
Appalachians, homesick-
ness called my wife and me
home to Florida.
Performing belly-busters in a
pool and weekend cruises on
my motorcycle during winter fi-
nally won out over walking like
one leg is shorter than the other
through frozen sleet across the
steep mountain terrain that was
our property.
During an RV trip to Florida
in July last year, spending time
with our two young grandsons
erased all remaining traces of
resolve for staying in beautiful
north Georgia.
We sold the Georgia home
and RV and bought what I hope
is our retirement home in west-
central Florida not long after
that fateful trip.
At times, I made light of the
clay-stained denim ensembles
of the hard-working ranchers
and farmers of north Georgia.


After all, bib overalls and
pointy cowboy boots are not in-
digenous to the turf and surf of
Floridian parrot heads like my-
self, for whom blowing out a
flip-flop on a super-heated side-
walk is more likely than step-
ping on a pitchfork covered by
hay.
However, leaving Florida and
returning nearly two years later
has lent me the advantage of
perspective.
What Florida lacks in the
quaint, rugged culture of Ap-
palachia, it makes up for in odd
individuality.
Not since our last visit to Key
West have I witnessed a more
disparate couple as the other
day, a few blocks from our
home.
A barefoot woman (thirty-
something) with long dark hair
wearing a tiny black bikini and
wide colorful headband was
leaning against a yard rake. It
was about 70 degrees, and the
sun was shining.
While doing winter yard work
barefoot in a tiny black bikini
isn't unheard of in Florida, she
looked to be about nine months
pregnant.
Her thin frame made her con-
dition all the more apparent.

Bronson reminds consumers



about free credit reports


Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles
Bronson is urging consumers
to take time to review their
credit reports now that holiday
bills are coming in. Federal
law provides people with one
free report annually from each
of the three major credit re-
porting agencies.
"People who got caught up in
the hectic pace of holiday
shopping may not have taken
steps to protect their personal
information," Bronson said.
"Most credit card bills are now
coming due, so it's the perfect
time to make sure there are no
unauthorized charges on their
accounts or other fraudulent
activity that could impact their
credit."
It's been nearly five years
since a change was made to the
Fair Credit Reporting Act that
requires the credit reporting


agencies to provide a free re-
port to consumers who request
one. The change was made to
encourage consumers to iden-
tify potential identity theft
quickly.
.A credit report contains in-
formation about a consumer's
credit history, including a list-
ing of all credit cards, loans,
bill payment history and bank-
ruptcies. Major consumer re-
porting agencies sell the
information to credit card
companies and other credi-
tors, insurers, employers and
businesses that review it when
consumers apply for credit, in-
surance, loans, and employ-
ment. A poor credit history can
result in rejection of credit or
higher interest rates on a
loan or credit card.
Bronson says people should
not get all three credit reports
at once, they should space
them out twelve months so

Letter to fair exhibitors
Dear Exhibitors,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for
your interest in Old McDonalds Farm. Our fair is all
about you and wouldn't be possible without you.
My new crew of parents and volunteers along with my-
self and the rest of the fair board have been hard at work
improving the looks and operability of the entire fair-
grounds.
As you attend this year's fair, you will see several new
and improved things just inside our barn! Please take
the time to comment on the improvements and notice all
the sponsors who helped make it happen.
There are also some changes in the rules I would like
to point out to you.
First, there will be specific feeding and clean-out
times for all animals. This will help save some of our
feed and limit the number of different times that the
cages will be opened.
Exhibitors are still encouraged to visit their animals.
The new feeding and clean out times are everyday at 9 to
11 a.m. and 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
There is only one check-in time. This is to cut down on
the state inspector having to come in two days in a row.
We have extended the time to ensure everyone gets in.
The new check-in time is the Thursday before the fair
from 4 to 9 p.m.
We are also going to add a new category for judging.
We want posters and displays of the kids and their ani-
mals. Basically it's a visual record book of the children
taking care of their animals.
All displays will be posted for all to see and judged on
creativity and artwork I encourage parent help, but ask
for the kids to do these posters.
Please don't forget our Uncle Roland and Aunt Glenna
Service Award. It is based on a point system. Points are
given to exhibitors who take care of their animal
throughout the fair and help out the barn staff. Please
keep in mind that they will only earn points if the ex-
hibitor is assisting.
They will also get points for attending the judging,
checking in on time, and completing all entry forms com-
pletely So work hard to get those points.
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestion
please feel free to contact me, or the fair office. We are al-
ways looking for new and exciting ideas and people to
help improve our barn. Remember, that this is our barn.
See you real soon!

Bushnell votes to continue Fall Festival


LARRY CLIFTON
Staff Writer

The Bushnell City Coun-
cil officially voted Feb.1 to
approve funding for the
2010 Fall Festival.
The popular community
venue was canceled last
October due to economic
concerns. However, the city
brought it back after deter-
mining there was sufficient


funds remaining in the
budget at the end of the fis-
cal year.
The vote means that the
Fall Festival is back, in-
cluding dancing and fire-
works.
Councilman Dale Swain
cast the only opposing vote
against continuing the his-
toric event.
Vice Mayor Warren Mad-
dox said he was "in favor of
everything, except he


would like to see the com-
mittee secure sponsors for
the fireworks and anything
else they could get spon-
sorships for."
Swain had voiced con-
cerns, in an earlier City
Council meeting, that the
costs of the festival in the
current economic climate
were prohibitive.
Following a motion
made by Councilman Dale
Barnes to approve the 2010


Fall Festival, Mayor Joe
Strickland passed the
gavel to Maddox, then sec-
onded the motion.
Strickland was a strong
proponent for continuing
the Fall Festival, and pro-
posed the dance and fire-
works, two events
caikelled last year, be re-
instated in 2010.
The council motion car-
ried 4-1.


The new program included an intergenerational gathering entitled 'Talk of Royal' between senior citizens
and youths. About 20 Royal senior citizens shared their life stories and answered questions from about
two dozen youths.


Royal program encompasses community


The community of Royal
has a new program called
the Royal Historical En-
richment Art Program
(RHEAP). It is designed to
capture the rich history of
the historic community
and enrich the lives of
Sumter County residents.
RHEAP is an after-
school and summer pro-
gram housed at the Alonzo
A. Young Sr. Enrichment
and Historical Center, 9569
County Road 235, Wild-
wood (Royal).
One successful event of
this new program was an
intergenerational gather-
ing entitled 'Talk of Royal'
between the seniors and
youths. It was on Tuesday,
Dec. 29, 2009. About 20 of
Royal senior citizens came
to share their life stories
and answer curious ques-
tions from about two dozen
youths.
At the event, senior citi-
zens shared childhood
memories such as coping
during the depression and
segregated living. The
youngsters were able to
learn details that are not
printed in most history
books. The event was the
first of many projects that
youth participants, in the
after school program, will
present throughout the
year and the upcoming
summer months.
In addition to collecting
the history, the students
participating will gain an
understanding of their
roots via music, visual arts,


dance, and photography
workshops. These work-
shops will be conducted by
professional artists at the
Enrichment and Historical
Center. The program is
funded via the 'Culture
Builds Florida' and the
Florida Art License Plate
grants.
To register as a student
participant or for more in-
formation, call 748-0260,


or you can e-mail RoyalPro-
ject@aol.com.
All junior- and senior-
grade-level students who
participate will earn com-
munity service hours for
volunteering. The pro-
gram is free to all students.
The program is managed
by Quenton Jones, Royal
Project lead counselor and
is sponsored in part by


Young Performing Artists
(YPAs), Inc., Royal Library
Association (RLA), the
State of Florida, Depart-
ment of State, Division of
Cultural Affairs, the

Grace notes


Kennedy

Special to the
Times _


I have a friend who loves
bees. Last week she
brought me to her se-
cret plade, a trail in a
wooded area in a local
park..Located on the trail
is my friend's bee tree.
My friend comes to this
secret place often. She said
she goes there to talk to
God, since how can you
help but talk to him sur-
rounded by all that nature?
"Just look up at the
canopy of trees!" she said
as we walked.
She told me about the
raccoon that startled her
and that she spooked away
and that someone had said
there's a bobcat out there.
(I asked her if bobcats eat
people, and she laughed
and said they do.)
She told me about seeing
a little old lady walk the
trail all hunched over with
her eyes on the ground.
She said she's tempted to
tell her to look up, to see
the beauty above her.
When we got to my
friend's bee tree, she prac-
tically squealed. She's


1Don't be a dumb bee

I been telling me about her tree. friend loves bees. Maybe ."Our eyes look to the author of "Move Over, Vi,
. bee tree for months. Last year my friend she sees miracle potential Lord until he has mercy on toria - IKnow the Real S,


When we had that super
cold spell a few weeks ago,
she worried that maybe the
bees froze. She had come
there the day before to
check on them and discov-
ered they were, indeed,
OK.
We stopped in front of
her bee tree and my friend
pointed way up at the hole
in the trunk and told me to
watch. The bees weren't
too active, she said, but at
least they were alive.
We tilted our heads back-
wards and watched the
bees for a while.
"I love bees," my friend
said.
Truthfully, I've never
loved bees. But I've loved
lizards on the sidewalk.
I've loved dawn and dusk,
ocean waves and the scent
of jasmine and hamsters
with their cheeks bulging
with food.
At the Florida Aquarium
there's a creature with a
face like a seahorse but a
body like a green, leafy
plant. I've loved that crea-
ture, although maybe not
as much as my friend loves
bees and loves her bee

talked about maybe be-
coming a beekeeper. I told
her I once wrote a story
about local beekeepers
and saw a real honeycomb
and it's perfectly shaped
hexagonal compartments.
How people can look at a
honeycomb or a leafy sea
creature at the Florida
Aquarium and not believe
in a Creator God is beyond
my comprehension.
After experiencing my
friend's love of her bees

some research on bees.
Did you know that these lit-

aerodynamic miracle? Ap-
parently, with their short
wings and squat bodies,
they're supposedly too fat
to fly, yet they do.
That shouldn't surprise
anyone. God has a way of
making things that should-
n't happen actually hap-
pen. Jesus said faith the
size of a mustard seed
could move a mountain.
He makes the blind see
and the lame walk and the
fearful conquer a mighty
opposing army.

in them.
Another thing I learned
about bees is that they die
if they don't look up. If you
drop one in a drinking
glass and leave it uncov-
ered, it will fly around try-
ing to get out but never
look up to the opening.
Consequently, it will
spend all its energy trying
to find a way out through
the sides or the bottom of
the glass until it eventually
dies. Dumb bees.
People can be like that,
too. We get trapped and
knock ourselves out trying
to escape circumstances by
our own efforts and some
people even die trying and
never escape.
Those who look up, how-
ever, find a way out.
Maybe bees don't know
to look up. Maybe their
necks are too fat to tilt
their heads. I don't think
it's a pride or a stubborn-
ness thing with bees like it
is with people. But I do
know that God tells people
to look up to him, to seek
him, to call upon him and
be rescued.

A day of training the trainers

BRENDA LOCKLEAR
Staff Writer

Blindfolds, metal anten-
nae and beeping signals
were "just another day" for
several Sumter County
sheriff's corporals last
S week
The officers participated
36-j in a training class for the
Care Trak system - learn-
ing to follow a signal that
they hoped would lead
them to their target.
In training, the target
was a small electronic de-
vice, but in real life, the
hope is to save a life.
The Care Track includes
an electronic device that
emits a specific signal that
can be picked up on the
monitoring system. The de-
vice is placed in a special
bracelet that's worn by a
person.
"It's a monitoring sys-
tem" for those with mem-
ory impairment,
predominantly
Alzheimer's," Caruthers
said.
Should the patient wan-
der from home or get lost,
authorities can utilize the
system to try to track and
locate the missing person.
"It's a system that we
have used for years," said
Sumter sheriff's Lt. Bobby
Caruthers.
The program was initi-
ated back in the mid-1990s
when the Sumter County
Pilot Club partnered with
the sheriff's office.
BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County Times "They, at that time, pur-
Sumter sheriff's Cpl. John Marshall (farthest) leads Cpl. Bob Capps as Capps follows the sound of the chased a monitoring sys-
electronic device signal. Capps' tracking system led him through the building and up a set of stairs in the
administration office. SeeTRACK, Page 9


Sheriff Bill Farmer


Farmer to

seek

reelection

Sumter County sheriff
Bill Farmer recently filed
his official application as
candidate for Sheriff in
the upcoming election.
Farmer began his law
enforcement career in
1965 with the FB.I. Identi-
fication Division in Wash-
ington, D. C., before a
two-year stint with the
United States Army (3rd
Army Infantry).
A Webster native,
Farmer served Sumter
County as a patrolman,
lieutenant, captain, and
chief deputy before being
elected sheriff in 1997. He
started as a sheriff's
deputy in 1971.
In addition to the many
boards and organizations
Farmer is associated with,
he currently serves as
board chairman, Florida
Sheriff's Association.

resource over the long
term.
"There is clearly a ni-
trate contamination prob-
lem in groundwater in our
area that affects us," she
said.
In particular, Lopez said
there is a growing need to
focus on toxic algae that is
impacting lakes like Lake
Harris.
"This is not a simple
issue," she said. "It impacts
people in many different
ways and we have to find a
way to deal with water is-
sues that is effective."
The EPA proposes to set
higher limits on the
amounts of phosphorus
and nitrogen in all inland
fresh water. These would
be the lakes, rivers,
streams, springs ' and
canals.
Nitrogen also forms from
the burning of fossil fuels,
like gasoline. Levels that
are too high can damage
drinking water sources,
form byproducts in drink-
ing water and increase ex-
posure to harmful algal
blooms that are made of
toxic microbes that can
cause damage to the nerv-
ous system. According to
the EPA, the higher levels
of phosphorus and nitro-
gen come from stormwater
runoff, municipal waste-
water treatment, fertiliza-
tion of crops and livestock
manure.
The new regulations
would increase water and
sewer bills and impose
huge economic burdens on
agricultural producers, ac-
cording to the farm bureau.
"For nearly a decade,
Florida's agricultural com-
munity has been proud to
cooperate with other busi-
nesses and government
agencies in the state's Total
Maximum Daily Loads
program," said John L.
Hoblick, farm bureau pres-
ident. "The TMDL pro-
gram, which established
numeric nutrient criteria
based on watersheds, has
caused Florida to be recog-
nized as a national leader
in water quality protection
and restoration. The action
by EPA abruptly changes
that."
Indeed, the EPA recog-
nizes Florida's leadership
in maintaining water qual-
ity.
"Florida has led the way
with rigorous scientific
analysis and data collec-
tion needed to address nu-
tirient pollution," said
Peter S. Silva, assistant ad-


ministrator for EPAs Of-
fice of Water. "By relying
on the best science, we can
set standards that protect
people's health and pre-
serve water bodies used
for drinking, swimming,
fishing and tourism. Newer
water quality standards,
developed in collaboration
with the state, will help
protect and restore inland
waters that are a critical
part of Florida's history,
culture and economic
prosperity."
What Silva described is
the Florida Department of
Environmental Protec-
tion's current program to
monitor and maintain
water standards, according
to Shinn, who said the
FDEP constantly tests


water in surface basins
throughout the state. It's
the Total Maximum Daily
Loads program or TMDL
that on the one hand is
lauded as working effec-
tively to protect Florida's
water, but on the other
hand is assumed to be lack-
ing in standards.
The reason tighter stan-
dards are necessary, ac-
cording to the EPA, is that
in 2008 FDEP reported
about 1,000 miles of rivers
and streams, 350,000 acres
of lakes and 900 square
miles of estuaries did not
meet the state's water
quality standards because
of excess nitrogen and
phosphorus. These repre-
sent about 16 percent of
Florida's assessed river

and stream miles, 36 per-
cent of assessed lake acres
and 25 percent of assessed
estuary square miles.
But according to Shinn,
the proposal to raise water
standards was brought on
by a lawsuit against the
EPA.
"These criteria are from
the settlement," Shinn
said.
In July 2008, several en-
vironmental groups sued
the EPA, claiming the fed-
eral government agency
was obligated to propose
the higher criteria under a
1998 Clean Water Action
Plan for any state that had
not already adopted the
criteria. Florida was the
test state.


Although the action plan
was not a formal determi-
nation that the criteria
were necessary, under the
lawsuit settlement the EPA
'was required to propose
the criteria and finalize the
criteria by October 2010 for
lakes and streams and by
October 2011 for estuaries
and coastal waters.
Through the FDEP,
Florida had been working
toward developing its own
criteria. However, its
schedule was overtaken by
the EPAs lawsuit settle-
ment.
"The EPA was working
with the (F)DEP this past
fall," Shinn said. "Sud-
denly, the EPA just pulled


out of it."
As a result, the FDEP an-
nounced it was prepared to
defer to the EPA to avoid
duplication of work

McCrimon, Hensley sign letters of intent


LARRY BUGG
Times Correspondent

Two of the Sumter
County high school sen-
ior athletes know where
they are going to school
next year and know they
don't have to pay all the
bills.
South Sumter High
linebacker Mike McCri-
mon signed with Wofford
College in Spartanburg,
South Carolina to play
football on scholarship
there.
Wildwood High quar-
terback Scott Hensley
signed a letter of intent to
attend Jacksonville Uni-
versity on academic
scholarships.
Both are excellent stu-
dents, which probably
helped both of them earn
those scholarships.
McCrimon, a 6-foot-2,
217-pound linebacker
had 37 solo tackles and 58
assists for 95 total tackles
plus two sacks this last
season for South Sumter
High School. He also
runs a 4.6 40-yard dash.
He has.a 3.5 grade
point average and plans
to study computer engi-
neering.
"He has a tremendous
work ethic," said South
Sumter head football
coach Inman Sherman.
"He's also very fast and
very aggressive. His


speed has a lot to do with
it. He's also an excellent
student."
McCrimon chose the
Division I-A school over
Virginia Military Insti-
tute.
"I feel like it is the right
place for me," McCrimon
said. "They (the South
Sumter High coaches)
prepared me very well. I
feel like I turned out to
be a better man with
their help."
"I'm extremely proud
of the way he has kept his
grades up," said Wanda
McCrimon, his mother.
"He plays all the sports."
Hensley threw for 1,498
passing yards and 15
touchdowns his senior
year at Wildwood High.
He also ran for 397 yards.
It doesn't hurt that he
has a 4.04 grade point av-
erage and will have a
Bright Futures Scholar-
ship help pay the college
bills at the NCAA Divi-
sion I school. He wants to
play quarterback and
long snapper at Jack-
sonville.
"It's a nice place and
close to home," said
Hensley. "I look forward
to playing for head coach
Kerwin Bell. He has been
successful wherever he
has gone."
Bell was a quarterback
at the University of
Florida and coached the

Ocala Trinity Catholic
High team to a state
championship before
moving on to Jack-
sonville.
Wildwood High coach
Dude Thompson feels
Bell really likes Hens-
ley's mind.
"I think Coach Bell is


most interested in his in-
tellect," said Thompson.
"Kerwin likes smart
quarterbacks. His quar-
terback really is like a
coach on the field. His
(Hensley's) intellect and
film study have im-
pressed me. He deserves
to succeed. Scott has


mental toughness."
Hensley's father, Mike
Hensley, is looking for-
ward to his son playing at
Jacksonville.
"I'm ecstatic," said the
elder Hensley. "I love the
program and the school.
The hardest part for me
was to let Scott be a man.


It was tough to let him
make the decision."
Scott Hensley, a 6-foot-
3, 170-pound athlete, was
born in Ashville, N.C. but
has lived in Sumter
County for 10 years. He
transferred from the Vil-
lages High School before
his senior year.

The bracelet looks like a

about $250 each and the
battery needs regular re-
placement, Caruthers said.
"About three weeks ago
the Sumter County Pilot
Club donated a second sys-
tem to us."
Caruthers said they plan
to keep one of the systems
in the Bushnell adminis-

at the Villages Annex. The
monitoring system costs
about $800, he said.


This particular training
program was to create
teachers. Caruthers said
the corporals will be able
to train other officers in
the use of the system.
They spent well over a
day hiding and retrieving
the devices from all over
the county, he said, adding
that they became "aware of
just how good of a tool this
is."
The officers trained
were Corporals Bob Capps,

The scene reminded me
of a former neighbor in
Land 0' Lakes, where we
lived for 19 years before
moving to the Appalachi-
ans.
To the chagrin of parents
on our otherwise quiet
street, on many warm Sat-
urdays, he wore a loincloth
while working on the lawn.
Parents were relieved
Saturday afternoons when
he donned leathers and
barreled out of the family-
orientated community on
his Harley - but I digress.
Standing next to the
nearly nude and very preg-
nant woman in our
planned community was a
portly, white-haired, older
man sporting a long, white
Santa beard and wearing
bright red suspenders that,
after following the consid-
erable contour of his un-
shirted belly, supported
loud green trousers.
The man's thumbs were
locked around his red sus-


penders. A white handle-
bar mustache over his
toothy smile matched his
beard.
"Did Santa finally burn
out?" I wondered.
He waved with two fin-

spiritually uplifting and enlightening new beginning
to a new year.
9-1A queen, Little Miss Simaya-Nikole Wilson, nine
months old, was crowned and a king, Little Mister .'
Brien Sesler, Jr, five years old.

S. " ' Little Mister Sesler's parents are Brien, Sr. and Coz-
ette Sesler.

son, second place; Little Miss LaNya Solomon, third

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) All
that flattery and fawning shouldn't
affect any decision you have to make.
Keep your focus on the facts and
ignore all the hyperbole, especially if it
gets uncomfortably personal.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your
Bovine instincts are on the mark about
that "favor" you're being asked to do.
Agree to nothing unless you get a full
explanation - which you would check
out first, of course.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A
somewhat unsettled recent period
should give way to a smoother time
going through the week. Use this qui-
eter time to catch up on matters you
might have had to let slide.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Feel-
ing a little confused is understandable
with all those mixed messages. Take
time to list the questions you have.
Then present them and insist on
answers that make sense.
LEO (July 23 to August 22) Cupid
can be very helpful for Lions seeking a
love connection. The chubby cherub
also brings warm and fuzzy feelings to
paired Leos and Leonas who already
share a special love line.
VIRGO (August 23 to September
22) Travel is favored this week,
whether you'll be globe-trotting or tak-
ing a trip to a nearby getaway. You
might be surprised (or maybe not) by
who wants to be your traveling com-

LIBRA (September 23 to October
22) Getting advice on your next busi-
ness-related move is a good idea, but
only if your advisers are trustworthy.
Get references that you can check out
before you make any decisions.
SCORPIO (October 23 to Novem-
ber 21) Getting a boost in your self-
esteem is one benefit that comes with a
job well done. There are other plusses
as well, including being noticed by all
the right people. Good luck.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to
December 21) Make time to deal with
family matters, especially where they
concern your elderly kinfolk. Being
there for them from the start can help
resolve problems sooner rather than
later.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to Jan-
uary 19) Getting a project started can
often be difficult. But the good news is
that you won't want for lack of assis-
tance from colleagues who would like
to work with you. So, let them!
AQUARIUS (January 20 to Febru-
ary 18) A lot of work-related issues
might be raised this week, and you
need to be prepared for whatever
comes along. Things should be easier
when it comes to matters in your pri-
vate life.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
What might appear to be a very much
unwanted change in your life right now
could turn out to be a very welcome
event after all. Give yourself a chance
to see where it might take you.
BORN THIS WEEK: You exercise
your strong leadership qualities well,
which is why people believe in you and
feel reassured by you.


Ants
coming
in? /


Ants come inside our homes looking
for dry, warm shelter, food and water.
To remove them, follow these steps:
* Vacuum up any ants inside.
* Find their entry point, and sprinkle
boric acid powder there.
* Remove any infested items such as
food containers, houseplants, dishes
or garbage cans.
* Clean any areas where you saw ants
by washing the area with hot, soapy
water; this removes the scent trails.
* Seal the entrance area with caulk.

Governor Crist applauds Florida's colleges for their role in economic recovery


Governor Charlie
Crist honored the
presidents and
trustees of Florida's 28
colleges for their impor-
tant role in training the
state's workforce to bet-
ter meet employment
needs and fuel eco-
nomic recovery. Lake-
Sumter Community
College Trustees Margo
Odom, Tim Morris,
Richard Bowersox and
Marcia Butler, along
with President Charles
Mojock attended the
Florida Association of
Community Colleges'
Annual Legislative
Summit last week (Feb.
2 and 3) in Tallahassee.
During the Feb. 3 as-
sembly, the Governor
paid tribute to-each col-
lege's continued com-
mitment to open access
and their service as a
source of postsecondary
opportunity for every
Floridian.
"Florida's colleges
play a unique and vital
role in our state by pro-
viding an affordable ed-
ucation to students in all
walks of life who want to
develop, retool, refine
and broaden their
skills," said Governor


Crist. "Because of their
ability to respond to
local labor market
needs, our colleges are
uniquely positioned to
prepare workers for
high-demand, high-
wage occupations that
are critical to Florida's
economic recovery."
Last week, as part of
his 2010-11 budget prior-
ities, Governor Crist rec-
ommended $2 billion to
support Florida's 28
community colleges, in-
cluding a $67 million in-
crease to meet rising
enrollment Recommen-
dations also include $6
million for operational
costs at new facilities,
$13.7 million for costs
associated with retire-
ment benefits, and $96.8
million in continued
funding from the Ameri-
can Recovery and Rein-
vestment Act of 2009.
"We appreciate the
Governor's recognition
of the key role our col-
leges play in the eco-
nomic recovery by
providing access to
quality workforce edu-
cation and university
transfer programs,"
added LSCC President
Charles Mojock. "Our


"Florida's colleges play a unique
and vital role in our state by
providing an affordable
education to students in all
walks of life who want to
develop, retool, refine and
broaden their skills."


faculty and staff have
done yeoman's work to
enable us to meet the
surging student demand
in the face of shrinking
state budgets. We need
this lifeline of funding
for at least part of our 34
percent growth over the
past three years in order
to keep the door of op-
portunity open."
The Governor's
budget proposal also in-
cludes $9.5 million to
maintain bachelor's de-
gree programs offered
by colleges within the
Florida College System.
An LSCC New Vision
Council, comprised of
community representa-
tives, met for the first
time on Jan. 27 to dis-
cuss the workforce and
educational needs of


Lake and Sumter coun-
ties. This Council will
make a recommenda-
tion to the LSCC Board
within the next few
months, as to whether or
not the college should
offer four-year degrees
and, if so, what type of
programs would be de-
veloped. Currently, 14 of
28 Florida colleges offer
more than 85 baccalau-
reate degree programs.
In addition to outlin-
ing his budget recom-
mendations, Governor
Crist recently called on
Florida's Talent Supply
Chain - the Board of
Governors, Agency for
Workforce Innovation,
. Department of Educa-
tion and Workforce
Florida - to embrace a
new era of collaboration


by formally partnering
with Florida's business
leaders to develop a
strategic plan to ensure
Florida's workforce is
equipped to meet the
demands of a global,
knowledge-based econ-
omy of the 21st century
The shared strategy will
ensure students can ac-
cess educational oppor-
tunities and gain skills
that will increase
Florida's economic
competitiveness.
Florida's colleges re-
main the primary point
of access to higher edu-
cation in Florida, with
58 percent of the state's
high. school graduates
pursuing postsecondary
education beginning at a
Florida college, and 81
percent of freshman and
sophomore minority stu-
dents in public higher
education attending one
of Florida's 28 colleges.
For the seventh year
in a row, Florida's col-
leges continue to set a
national example in the
number of associate de-
grees awarded.
According to Commu-
nity College Week's an-
nual "Top 10" report
conducted by the Na-


tional Center for Educa-
tion Statistics, Florida
colleges are among the
country's top producers
of associate degrees, the
number of associate de'
grees awarded to minor-
ity students and the
number of associate de-
grees awarded in the
health professions and
related sciences fields.
Despite the current
economic challenges,
Florida's colleges con-
tinue to have an open-
door admission policy;
serving more than
845,000 students in 2009,
an increase of 9.6 per-
cent from the previous
year. Early enrollment
indicators also predict a
robust year for college
campuses throughout
the state in 2010.
In addition to en-
rolling a majority of the
state's high school grad-
uates who go on to post-,
secondary education,;
the state's colleges are,
the institution of choice
for many veterans taking
advantage of the new GI
Bill, and for adult learn-
ers looking to bolster
their personal and pro-
fessional skills or pre-
pare for a new career.

Critter chatter




Another one 'found'


JUDI HOGAN
Special to the Times

There's another one -
walking along the side of
the road. You can't stand
the thought of his getting
hit by a car, so you pull
over. You get out of your
car, walk into the grass
and call him. He hesitates,
but seems friendly, and
comes to your coaxing.
'This is a frequent occur-
rence in Sumter County.
You place him in your car.
He has no rabies tag or
collar. Think he was
"dumped?" ... or his
owner doesn't take good
care of him because he got
loose? Think you'll take
him home, give him a bath
and some food..- then find
him a good home? Your
motives are commend-
able, but it's the wrong
choice. The dog may have
a heartsick guardian fran-
tically looking for him.
Let's face it, stuff happens.
Or did he wander into
your yard ... looking for
food and companionship?
What should you do?
First, check for nearby
houses where you found
the dog. Ask residents if
they recognize him. The
problem may be solved
quickly. If not, you have
choices. You can take him
to Animal Control to give
his guardian a chance to
find him. They will check
him for a tattoo and a mi-
crochip implanted under
that furry skin. A guardian
is guaranteed three busi-
ness days to claim him. It's

true he stands the risk of
being euthanized" at the
end of the three days.
Thousands of dogs and
cats are euthanized each
year due to lack of space.
However, you can adopt
him from Animal Control
when his "time is up." Be
prepared to pay a veteri-
narian to go to Animal
Control to give him a ra-
bies shot and a fee to
neuter him before you can
take him home. It is the
law.
Your third choice is for
you to try to find the
guardian. Florida law re-
quires you to contact Ani-
mal Control at 793-1470 to
inform them you have
found the pet. If the
guardian hasn't contacted
them, they will place the
dog on a "Found List" You
can take him into Animal
Control for a free tattoo


001


and microchip check
The Humane Society, by
appointment, will also do
a free tattoo and mi-
crochip check. Call 793-
9117 and leave a message
to see if the guardian has
contacted the Humane
Society. If not, the society
will place the pet on their
"Found List."
Next contact local vet-
erinarians in case the
guardian called them.
Take the animal to a vet-
erinarian for a health
check, preferable before
you take him home and
especially if you have pets
of your own. Find the
guardian yet? No?
Place classified ads in
newspapers and posters
in veterinarian clinics,
stores, churches, wher-
ever owners will allow you
to, especially near where


you found him. Include a
description of the animal,
the area where you found
him and your phone num-
ber. Do not include your
name and address. Do not
include in the description
one identifier that is ex-
clusive to this animal,
such as an unusual mark-
ing, a scar, one ear that
will not stand up, etc.
There are people out
there who get "free" ani-
mals to sell to laboratories
or to use for animal fight-
ing. When "the guardian"
calls, make him describe
his pet to you.
If you are getting no re-
sponses, keep the animal
for a minimum of five
days, better yet, two
weeks.
You still have him?
Now... find him a good
home ... or has he already
found one with you?

Pet of the week


Shortcake is a very sweet loving girl. She is an
adorable young Boston Terrier mix. Shortcake is a
very clean and neat dog. She loves to play with toys.
Shortcake suffered severe abuse which has left her
with a disabled back leg. But that doesn't stop her
from running and playing and giving her love to
someone. She prefers the company of male dogs
and wants to be queen of the house. Shortcake is
spayed and current on her vaccinations. Call the Hu-
mane Society/SPCA of Sumter County at 793-9117
or e-mail to humane@sum.net if you would like to
adopt Shortcake. Visit our Web site at
